Please join us for our December 8 reading and fundraising event celebrating an amazing first year!

December 8 brings three, that's right 3 acclaimed writers to the Libertine Library: Sam Apple, Amy Sohn, and Jeffrey Rotter. All are great writers who will share their work, wit, and tales from the trenches of writing while simultaneously parenting!

In addition to readings by literary superstars, there will be festive drink specials, literary prize giveaways, and a flurry of Pen Parentis mystery guests on hand to keep things interesting.

For our December 8 event, may we suggest making a heartfelt and generous cash donation to Pen Parentis? Any donations of $20 and up are conveniently payable by credit card and tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law...

Thank you in advance for doing what you can to keep New York's most unique reading series alive and well in 2010, and thank you for a groundbreaking first year!
